Its been a long time coming - 21 months to be exact - but at last it appears I have this bloody disease under control - officially.
I had the results of my CT scan on Thursday.
In the past 5 months one tumour has grown slightly. All the others are the same, no growth at all. So I have 'stability'.
Not only has Sutent slowed the growth of the cancer in my body - it has stopped it altogether.
I can hardly find the words to express how fantastic this news is. After all the set backs and disappointments, after all the nasty vile treatments and procedures and operations, after all the pain and the tears and the worry and fear, after fighting for my very life day by day, week by week - at LAST I can relax a little.
And I intend to, starting on Tuesday when Martin and I go on our cruise. We really DO have something to celebrate now and we can do it in style.
Ofcourse I realise Sutent could stop working at any moment - who knows how long this will last ? But however long, or short, it is Im going to make the very best of it and enjoy every single second because I really think Ive earned it.....
